The School District of Independence established a 501(c)(3) Foundation in 1992 which serves a variety of district, student and staff needs. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. The Foundation has its own Board of Directors and is an incorporated entity through the State of Missouri.
You can make contributions to the Foundation through payroll deduction to the Foundation General Fund, which benefits programs including scholarships, Project Shine, Holiday Helpers, Inspire Volunteers, Student Dual Credit assistance, ISD Academies, Classroom Grants, New Teacher Grants and more.
We understand that giving is a heartfelt act and we appreciate all donations at anytime via check or online through the website.
To utilize payroll deduction, we do ask for a minimum contribution of $45 per school year (October-June) ($5 per month)
You will have the opportunity to begin Payroll Deduction during enrollment July 20th – Aug. 28th. After Aug. 28th, complete the Payroll Deduction form here:
